American Wine Society Journal: Famed Winemakers on Vintage '63
Authenticity. The wide use of the word by winemakers around the world often puzzles me, because they usually don't answer the obvious question: Authentic to what?

For the summer issue of the American Wine Society Journal, I asked six famous winemakers - Robert Drouhin, James Symington, Marco Felluga, Joe Babich ,Mike Grgich and Angelo Gaja - what winemaking was like 50 years ago during the 1963 vintage in their part of the world. What did authenticity mean in 1963?
